Publisher's Description

NetVeda Safety.Net is an application firewall that offers inbound and outbound protection, as well as filtering, parental controls and email safety to protect you from hackers, worms, trojans and intruders. It uses multi layer deep packet stateful inspection and enables you to configure which applications and components are trusted to access the network or Internet. In addition, some advanced firewall settings enable you to customize rules for enhanced security. The firewall features are basic, but application control and content filtering features let you restrict access to web sites, remove content from emails and browser requests, disarm email attachments and more. In addition, NetVeda Safety.Net offers reports about application and network activity and allows you to apply rules to networked computers that use your machine as an Internet gateway.

Netveda Safety.NET IS free to for non-commercial, private use. There was a bug that made it *seem like* Safety.Net needed to be paid for. This latest version has fixed that bug.

Changes made by latest version...
- Content Control
- Traffic Recording by Application programs and Network services (protocol/ports)
- Traffic Rate Control to set the asymmetric transfer rates for Applications

Bug fixes since 3.6 release include,
- License expiry bug for free version of the software
- Numerous fixes to improve stability

This is an excellent firewall! Free. Very light on resources.

This is not free!!! After about six weeks, it deactivated and asked me to buy the software.It is easy firewall to use though compared to Zone Alar.

I am very impressed with this program . Passed all
tests on Shields Up. Easy to configure Emule for full access.
After 6 weeks , not one hint of a request for payment , definitely free.
Not that I would want to , but to uninstall ,simply go to Add/Remove Programs and Voila there it is !!
I have tried them all and this , IMO ,is the best , for novices or experienced users.

This is NOT freeware. When I run the program it tells me I must purchase a licence which sells for $39 and will not let me run it unless I pay them - http://www.netveda.com/p...ase/?product=Safety.Net

And there is No uninstaller. What CRAP!!!

Light on resource, no doubt about that. But one thing confuses me, what should we put exactly in WAN adapters & LAN adapters? Some guys in wildersecurity forum said the inverse of netvada's speed guide. Any help would be appreciated guys! =)

Very Good solid firewall. Attention needed to configure properly. You don't have to be a Rocket Scientist though, it does it's job well.

Doesn't conflict with Avast Home. Passed firewall tests

I was using ZoneAlarm for awhile and its a good firewall but utilises a lot of my PC resources. Then I tried a few smaller and less popular firewalls but they were either insecure or complicated to setup. Netveda though is not perfect but its still the best firewall I ever tested.

Hard to assign ports. Runs a little like Zone Alarm Pro with its pop-up warnings and asking you to allow - just this once - or block.

But with Steam,Valve at my house for the kids I need the port assignments to be easyly set and not digging into an hour of Help and forum search

I´ve been trying it for a couple of days. So far so good. Fairly easy to make rules (not as easy as in Looknstop tho). It passes all stealth tests (GRC.COM, Sygate, PCflank and so on)
It has an simple realtime app activity log. You can see the connected applications and were they are connected to.
They have a forum, but the developers doesnt seem to be too active in there. Maybe they leave fast support for the pro version? I cant seem to find any info what differs between the free and pro version on their site.
I´ll give it a four. If it were been possible to make rule via the log I would give it a five. Looknstop has raised the bar for firewalls in my book.

But if you are looking for new stuff to try. I recommend this one. Interresting newcomer. Well I dont know if this app is new or old, but it is new to me :)

No I haven't tried it. I am using agnitum outpost with the blockpost plugin. Still, free with component control in and out is something everyone should have & something which one should never have to pay for.
